So if you want a new 6-7 person camping tent for your upcoming adventures, you’ll love this guide.

Our Verdict: Winterial Teepee Tent

The Winterial Teepee Tent is built for three-season camping. 

It’s a non-freestanding tent that uses a single center pole and a total of 30 ground stakes to give a reliable structure. 

It has solid windows that allow you to see out without letting cold air in. 

There are also 2 zippered doors on so it’s easier for one person to exit without climbing over the buddies.

The bottom is made from a waterproof tarp type material. The main body is constructed of 210T polyester material, which is also waterproof. 

With a pack weight of 15 pounds and a peak height of eight feet, this is a great 6-7 person tent for three-season car camping or short backpacking trips (spread the weight between you)  in mild environments!

Ease Of Setup

The Winterial Teepee Tent is super easy to set up because it only has a single central pole. 

It does come with 30 stakes for the bottom of the tent, the cap for the top of the pole, and guy lines that help maintain its structure.

Top Tip… 

…you’ll be able to set Winterial Teepee Tent in minutes by staking the bottom edges down first and then installing the central pole. 

You should always set up the pole cap on top if you’re expecting any bad weather overnight.

But it simply secures right to the body of the tent – very easy.

Overall Comfort

The octagonal shape can make it a bit challenging for people to get comfortable at first. 

Overall, however, this tent is big enough for each person to have nearly 20 square feet of personal space inside.

This is assuming you fill it to its maximum capacity of seven people…

That’s actually quite a bit more space than the Wenzel Great Basin provides for each person at maximum capacity.

The way everyone will need to sleep will probably be the biggest challenge to getting comfortable. 

We slept with everyone’s heads towards the central pole and our feet towards the outer edge of the tent.

It also doesn’t have a covered awning or exterior vestibule that would double as somewhere to keep other gear safe and dry without taking up space inside. 

Which means…

Everything will have to fit inside if you’re using it on a short backpacking trip. 

But if you’re just using it for car camping…

The lack of extra space for shoes, packs, and other gear inside won’t be a problem. 

“So if you want a tent where you can remove the pole cap for everyone to enjoy a view of the night sky while falling asleep, check this teepee tent out!”

Weather Resistance

The main body material of the Winterial Teepee Tent is 210T polyester. 

It has its own waterproof qualities that keep the interior dry. Add in the waterproof tarp material used in the bottom of the tent and you can understand why it boasts a 1500-millimeter waterproof rating.

To put it in simpler terms…

You won’t wake up in this tent to find water in places you don’t want it to be.

That being said…

The angled nature of the walls means anything that touches them is likely to get wet from condensation. 

Some of the absolute best large tents we reviewed, such as the White Duck Outdoors Avalon Bell, do offer a higher degree of weather resistance than the Winterial Teepee Tent.

Workmanship

The quality of the materials used in this tent help to improve its overall workmanship ranking. 

And the addition of a plastic stabilizer on the floor was much appreciated on rainy nights.

However…

It falls a bit down our rankings because of the lack of attention given to the seams.

What we really would have liked to see when testing this tent was sealed or taped seams. 

This is a crucial component to a tent’s ability to withstand wind, rain and other harsh conditions. 

So…

If you’re looking for one with a little better workmanship, we recommend checking out the CORE x 9 Person Instant Cabin Tent.

Packed Size

The Winterial Teepee Tent ranks as the most compact large tent on our list! 

It weighs just 15 pounds and has packed dimensions of 23” x 9” x 9”.

So while it’s best use is for car camping…

“You could easily split the weight and use this tent for a short backpacking trip.”

“The Winterial Teepee Tent is made of 210T Polyester that provides long-lasting use and protection from the elements. Pack weight 15lbs!”

Conclusion: Winterial Teepee Tent

So, time to wrap this up and put a bow on…

The Winterial Teepee Tent is a great large tent for three-season camping in relatively mild climates.

We really like the fact that the manufacturer has included a plastic stabilizer for extra floor structure throughout the entire 119-square feet of interior space.  

After thorough testing…

It’s best application is really for car camping because of the limited gear storage in or around the tent. 

However…

If you really want to, you’ll be able to sleep your entire family on a short backpacking trip as it weighs much less than other large tents with similar capacities. 

Anyone that’s interested in a novel teepee tent with plenty of head clearance and floor space should definitely give the Winterial Teepee Tent a closer look. 

Okay, our work here is finished – now it’s over to you to make your choice for your next family camping trip!
